Over the past decade, subscription services have become increasingly popular around the United States. Subscriptions are perfect for our busy lives – they bring us what we need when we need it.

Cutting Edge Firewood began offering our innovative firewood subscription service in 2018 and it has since become increasingly popular. In this post, we’ll share 6 compelling reasons you should start a firewood subscription right now, and answer some of the most common questions we receive about our subscriptions.

1) Convenience

Have you ever woken up on a cold morning and said, “this is the perfect time to start a fire!” But then, when you went to build it, you realized you had no firewood left!

Life is busy enough without needing to go out and find firewood for sale or chop and season your own wood. Cutting Edge Firewood makes it easier than ever before to have a good stock of firewood available.

Our subscription service means you never even have to think about where your next fire will come from – we’ve already delivered the wood to your home!

2) More Savings

Our Subscription service provides the most affordable way to receive firewood and can save you up to 43.5% from our standard retail pricing.

Let’s look at a couple examples – one for a monthly rack subscription and one for a weekly box subscription.

One rack of hickory costs $285, but when you choose a monthly rack subscription, that same rack only costs $199. If you had a rack subscription for 3 months (November – January), then you would receive up to 3 racks worth of firewood for $597. If you bought the racks without the subscription, this would cost $855. In three months, you’ll save $258 (or 30%)!

A box of hickory costs $59, but when you choose a weekly box subscription, that same box only costs $39. If you have a box subscription for 12 weeks, then you’ll receive 12 total boxes for $468. Those 12 boxes on their own would cost $708. In that 12 week subscription period, you’ll save $240 (or 33.9%)!

You can really maximize your savings if you choose a pecan box subscription. One box of pecan normally costs $69, but when you get a weekly subscription it’s only $39 (savings of 43.5%).

3) The Best Firewood Available – Every Time

One of the challenges people face is finding consistently good firewood. You might get a good batch from a supplier one week, and then find that next month the firewood is wet and moldy or completely sold out!

You don’t have to worry about that with Cutting Edge Firewood. We deliver the best firewood available, every time. Our firewood goes through the most rigorous drying process in the industry. It is delivered free from pests, mold, and fungus. It is easy to light, clean from dirt, and provides an amazing aroma. We hand select each piece of firewood before delivering to your home – ensuring you only get the best.

The Best Firewood Available- Every Time

And of course, our firewood is available throughout the entire year. Want to enjoy a summer bonfire at the lakehouse? Cutting Edge has you covered. Need something right before Christmas? We’re ready to deliver!

4) No Long Term Commitments

Remember that time you signed up for a gym membership? You chose the 18 month plan because of how much money it would save! Only problem is, after 6 months you stopped going.

We understand that life circumstances and seasons may change the way you burn firewood, that’s why our subscriptions only require a short, 3 month commitment. While many of our customers choose to keep their subscription year round, enjoying great fires both indoors and outside, you are more than welcome to keep your just through the winter.

5) More Variety

If you want to try the different species or cuts we offer at Cutting Edge Firewood, then subscriptions are a great way to go. For instance, if you have a weekly box subscription, you can try different boxes whenever you choose.

Variety of Wood SpeciesPerhaps your first couple boxes will be hickory, then you can switch to cherry, and then to oak. Once it warms up, maybe you go after some pecan cooking wood or try our variety pack of chunks.

Our subscriptions offer great flexibility – you can also change the speed at which you receive the firewood. If you have a weekly subscription and want to switch to a monthly one, no problem! If you have a monthly and want to switch to every two weeks, then go for it! Simply contact our customer service team and we’ll get you taken care of.

6) Countless Memorable Experiences

For thousands of years, people have gathered around the fire to connect, share stories, and relax. Here at Cutting Edge Firewood, we’re all about creating memorable experiences around the fire.

Enjoying a great fire with family and friends should be a time to enjoy each other, not a time where you’re fighting to get a fire started or inhaling a ton of musty smoke.

With Cutting Edge boxes or racks, you can rest assured that every fireside experience will be a good one. You can get the fire going with a single match and then sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself!

Frequently asked questions about Subscriptions

  1. What’s the difference between a box subscription and a rack subscription? Our rack and box subscriptions are similar in many ways, but there are a few differences. First and most obvious, with our rack subscription you will receive the firewood in a carbonized steel, 2′ by 4′ rack. Our box subscription comes in…a box! Rack subscriptions are only available on a monthly basis, but box subscriptions can be for every week, every two weeks, or every month. The final difference is, when you have a box subscription, we bring you a brand new box every time your subscription period dictates. With rack subscriptions, we show up each month and replenish your existing rack.
  2. Does a rack subscription include the carbonized steel rack? Yes! We include the Cutting Edge Firewood rack with your subscription. There are no additional sign-up costs to receive the rack.
    premium firewood rack metal
  3. How long does a subscription last? Subscriptions can last as long as you want! The minimum subscription period is only 3 months, so you don’t need to commit to anything long-term.
  4. How much does delivery cost for subscriptions? If you are inside our local delivery zones, then delivery is complimentary on every box or rack subscription! For residents outside of our local delivery zones, shipping charges do apply and vary based on location.
  5. Can I have more than one subscription at a time? Yes! We have several customers who receive multiple boxes at a time or multiple racks at a time. For instance, you might choose a subscription for a monthly rack of hickory and a monthly rack of extended burn hickory.
  6. Which products are available for subscription? We offer a wide variety of subscription products for both racks and boxes. The best way to see what’s available is to visit our rack subscription page or our box subscription page.

Become a maser fire-builder using Cutting Edge Firewood’s signature kiln-dried firewood. Whether you’re looking to build fires for heat, relaxation, cooking or just for fun, there’s no substitution for kiln-dried firewood. And with our Delivery Artisan service, you can have kiln-dried firewood shipped straight to your Athens home, allowing you and your family to enjoy brighter fires.

About Athens, GA

Athens-Clarke County, or what’s more commonly known by Georgians as just “Athens,” is a heavily populated city and county in Georgia. It’s located northeast of Atlanta and is the home of the University of Georgia (UGA).

The origins of Athens can be traced back to the late 1700s, during which it trading posts were established along the Oconee River. In 1785, developer Abraham Baldwin was granted a charter by state lawmakers for the construction of UGA. Reports show that the first schools and buildings on the campus were made almost entirely out of wooden logs. Today, UGA is one of the nation’s top colleges, attracting roughly 25,000 applications each year from high school graduates looking to attend.

The Benefits of Burning Kiln-Dried Firewood at Your Athens, GA Home

Using kiln-dried firewood at your Athens home offers several benefits. First, it produces more heat than other types of firewood. The low moisture content of kiln-dried firewood — usually 10% or less – means it burns more efficiently, resulting in greater heat. Second, kiln-dried firewood produces little or no smoke. This is particularly important when building fires in a fireplace, as too much smoke can lead to creosote buildup in your chimney while also setting off your smoke alarm. Third, kiln-dried firewood is safer to burn than other types of firewood. Because of its superior dryness, it doesn’t pop like fresh or wet firewood.

Where to Find Kiln-Dried Firewood in Athens, GA

With a popular of over 125,000, local firewood sells quickly in Athens. And even if you’re able to find a roadside vendor selling firewood, it probably won’t be kiln-dried. Very few roadside vendors sell kiln-dried firewood. Instead, they sell air-dried firewood that’s been left to dry. Air-dried firewood is better than fresh or green firewood, but it doesn’t come close to achieving the same level of performance as kiln-dried firewood.

The good news is that you can still buy kiln-dried firewood for your Athens home by ordering it from Cutting Edge Firewood. For over five years, we’ve been delivering premium kiln-dried firewood, cooking wood and other fire-building accessories to residents throughout the Southeast, including Athens.


Can I Use Other Types of Firewood at My Athens, GA Home?

It’s fine to use certain types of other firewood to build fires at your Athens home, but there are a few things you should know. Do not use fresh or green firewood. The terms “fresh” and “green” refer to firewood that was recently harvested from a tree and hasn’t been dried. Coincidentally, a report published by UGA notes that a single cord of fresh oak firewood contains up to 55 gallons of water. Not only does this make it difficult to light, but the high moisture content of fresh firewood restricts the amount of heat it produces. Instead, burn either air-dried or kiln-dried firewood, the latter of which is recommended since it contains about half the moisture content as its air-dried counterpart.

You can also use cooking wood at your Athens home. Cooking wood comes from many of the same varieties as kiln-dried firewood, such as oak. But its smaller size makes it ideal for grilling and smoking foods.

Cooking With Firewood: Mistakes to Avoid

Using a flavorful variety of firewood can help you can cook delicious meats and veggies. Unfortunately, some people make one or more mistakes when using firewood to grill or smoke foods. One common mistake to avoid is dousing firewood with lighter fluid. While firewood is certainly easier to ignite when doused in a flammable substance, you have to consider how it affects your food. When lit, chemicals from the lighter fluid will turn to smoke that rises into your food while leaving behind a harsh chemical taste. To prevent this from happening, never use lighter fluid or any other flammable liquid on your firewood.

Another mistake to avoid when cooking with firewood is using too much heat. Heat is necessary to release the flavorful compounds from the wood. If you use too much heat, however, it will cause your wood to quickly burn and, subsequently, prevent you from slow-cooking your food. You can control the amount of heat produced by your fires by placing the wood next to the charcoal. For example, you can create one stack of charcoal and another stack of wood chips or chunks. By placing the wood next to the charcoal, it will burn more slowly.

One of the great pleasures of Chicago in the wintertime is sitting round the fireplace with family members, friends and a favorite beverage, watching the flames flicker and dance. Sourcing good firewood can be difficult, though. Many local vendors sell green wood that’s scavenged from trees local landscapers have cut down. You can get high-quality kiln-dried firewood Chicago, though. Cutting Edge Firewood sells premium hickory, oak and cherry wood splits. Our firewood has been kiln-dried so that it lights quickly, is absolutely free of pests or mold, and produces less creosote buildup than other types of wood. Our firewood deliver Chicago service means that we will bring your firewood straight to your door, which saves you the hassle of transporting it from a local vendor.

About Chicago, Illinois

The poet Carl Sandburg dubbed Chicago “Player with Railroads and the Nation’s Freight Handler,” a designation the Windy City still merits even though the poem was written more than a century ago. The city is an important international hub for transportation as well as for commerce and industry, and more than 2,700,000 people call it home. After the Great Fire of 1871 destroyed large parts of the city, Chicago utilized new building styles to reinvent itself, becoming one of the first cities to sport a steel-framed skyscraper skyline in the early years of the 20th century. The Windy City is also an important cultural center that’s closely associated with quintessentially American art forms such as jazz, hip-hop, the blues, gospel and standup comedy.

Premium Firewood Chicago

Chicago is famous for its rough winters. Temperatures stay well below freezing for the most part between December and March. Blizzards are commonplace, and in an average year, snowfall exceeds three feet. One of the keys to thriving during these cold, dark months is getting together with friends and family members as often as possible. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, your loved ones will enjoy sitting around a fire with you.

Cutting Edge Firewood ships firewood straight to your home so that you’ll never have to worry about running out. We’re passionate about firewood, and that passion shows in our product: We sell kiln-dried firewood Chicago that’s been specially treated in a high-temperature oven for a full 48 hours. Our firewood is also great for use in fire pits and in wood-burning stoves. You’ll have the option of choosing between hickory, oak and cherry wood splits.

Building the Perfect Fire

Few things are more frustrating than fireplace flames that keep going out or produce so much smoke that your eyes begin to sting. Here are some tips for building a perfect fire:

Your firewood should be as dry as possible. This will not only make your fire easier to light, it will also cut down on the amount of smoke and creosote your flames produce.

Make sure your fireplace is clean. Shovel out any ashes into a metal container, and store that container outside away from your house. Ashes are combustible, so you’ll want to keep them well away from fire.

Prime your chimney flue by leaving the damper open for approximately one-half hour before you start your fire.

Start your fire with newspaper and kindling. Stack your kindling in a crisscross pattern so that your fire will have sufficient ventilation. Twigs and sticks from your backyard won’t really do the trick because chances are they’ll contain too much moisture to light properly. The kindling Cutting Edge Firewood sells has been conditioned just as thoroughly as our premium firewood Chicago so that it’s extremely dry and very easy to light. Newsprint is preferable to magazine because magazine pages contain noxious chemicals.

• Once your kindling catches fire, begin adding dry splits. Cutting Edge Firewood’s 16-inch splits are the perfect length for most fireplaces. For oversized fireplaces, we also sell 24-inch and 30-inch splits. Either add the splits in a crisscross arrangement or place them upright like a teepee. There needs to be enough space between the splits so that air can get through them. Oxygen feeds flames.

Now it’s time to put your fire screen in place and to sit back and enjoy your fire. The stress-reducing properties of a blazing fire are real: Scientists have discovered that dreaming by a fire can reduce your blood pressure by as much as 5 percent.

Premium Firewood Chicago

When you rely on Cutting Edge Firewood’s firewood deliver Chicago, firewood will be available any time you want to enjoy your fireplace. You won’t have to worry about tracking down a local vendor, and you can be certain that your firewood is comprised of high-quality hardwoods. We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about out unique kiln-drying process or firewood deliver Chicago, so call Cutting Edge Firewood today at (678) 878-2434.

Our ancestors used to sit around the fire and tell stories as a past time, and while we may live in modern houses now and the need for heating and cooking over the fire aren’t necessary, we still feel a type of bond with people when sitting around the fire with them. To have a fire, you need wood. The type of wood chosen will have an impact on whether you have a good fire or a poor one. With a premium firewood Charlotte NC company, you can rest assured that you receive quality firewood, and it gets delivered straight to your door.

What Determines Firewood Quality?

The two chief elements to determine the quality of firewood include density and moisture content. If the firewood feels too moist, the fire will spend more time trying to dry the wood and convert the water to steam than it will with generating heat. Here are several telltale signs to know if your firewood is dried:

  • The color of the wood is darker.
  • Loose bark is falling off it.
  • Look for cracking and checking on the ends.
  • You can tell by the weight. The dryer it gets, the less it weighs.
  • How does the firewood sound?

Different species dry faster than others. Cherry dries in eight months. Red oak will take around a year to a year and a half to dry.

Using a Moisture Meter

One of the ways that you can tell how much moisture content exists in the firewood is through using a moisture meter. This will tell you at what percentage the firewood has of moisture in it. We want to do this because we can find higher quality firewood in this way. After the firewood delivery Charlotte company visits your door, check the moisture of the firewood. Typically, a 12-percent reading shows that it has been sitting for a while, and you will have higher quality firewood as a result.

Keeping Your Home Warm in the Winter

The coastal areas of South Carolina see mild winters, but you do have cold weather that finds its way to your home a few times per year. Keeping your home warm can be done using firewood, and you enjoy a cozy feeling at the same time. Going with a kiln-dried Charlotte company like ours can get this wood delivered straight to your home. You can choose to use either a fireplace or a woodburning stove. Here are some tips with the fireplace and woodburning stove to stay warm this winter:

  • Open the fire damper to ensure your fire gets enough oxygen.
  • Only burn kiln-dried wood.
  • Install a chimney cap to prevent cold downdrafts and rain and snow from getting in.
  • Chimney caps will often have side vents so that the smoke escapes.

In general, if you have to choose between a woodburning stove and a fireplace, you may want to go with the woodburning stove. You see an average of 50 to 75 percent greater efficiency in this way. This means that when you buy from a kiln-dried firewood Charlotte company, you get a better deal on the firewood because it lasts longer. You don’t have to buy more soon after.

Staying Safe This Winter

On average, 430 deaths happen per year in the United States due to carbon monoxide poisoning. In particular, most of the deaths happen over the winter season as people dust off their furnaces and start using them. To stay safe, place carbon monoxide detectors near the fireplace as well as in your bedrooms. Another thing that you need to stay safe is to hire a chimney sweep who can eliminate the creosote and blockages in the chimney. Many times, you will even find more than the creosote like dead animals that may have fallen into the chimney. How often you should hire one depends on how much you burn wood. A general rule is that you may want to consider having your chimney inspected at least once per year. If you use the fireplace on a regular basis, it protects your chimney from starting on fire. One way that you can lower the amount of creosote in the chimney is to hire a kiln-dried firewood Charlotte company because better quality wood lowers the amount of creosote released into the chimney.

Tips for Keeping Firewood Stored

What do you need to know when you go to store firewood? First, you should understand when buying that you most likely won’t burn all of it at once. You want to store your firewood in an area where you have easy access to it. Firewood can still be heavy, and you don’t want to have to carry it long distances if possible. In addition, try not to store it in a wet area because this can make your firewood moist and difficult to light. Even if you do light it, wet wood doesn’t produce as much heat as dried wood. Finally, keep your firewood elevated. You want to do this because it keeps it away from the excess moisture on the ground. In fact, firewood racks have the key purpose of keeping the wood off the ground.

With these things in mind, you also tend to get a better experience with delivery because of the convenience. You can buy at our online store, and we will have the firewood shipped straight to your door by freight shipping. Kiln-dried firewood offers some of the least moisture in the wood, and this delivers the best amount of heating for an indoor space. In an outdoor space, it delivers heat around the fire to everyone. Dried-kiln wood is just better in general.

January 9, 2019

On a chilly winter’s night, few pleasures can compete with gathering with your family and friends around the fireplace in your Nashville home to watch the flames.

There is something special about the fire. It’s been a connecting place for people for thousands of years. Scientific studies have even shown that watching a fire can actually lower your blood pressure a significant amount!

But as relaxing as a great fire can be, sometimes finding good firewood can be surprisingly difficult. There is nothing worse than trying to light a fire with low quality firewood that is wet, moldy, and creates a ton of smoke.

This is why Cutting Edge Firewood exists: we deliver the best firewood available – every time. We take the mess and stress out of obtaining firewood, delivering it to your home. And  of course, our products light quickly and easily. In no time at all, you’ll be enjoying a fire that burns brighter, smells better, and creates less smoke than any fire you’ve ever experienced.

The Importance of Community in Nashville, Tennessee

Sure, Nashville may be most famous as the home of country music, but that’s just one of the many things that make this city such a great place to live. Nashville was founded in 1779 and named for Francis Nash who was a general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. Its strategic position along the Cumberland River quickly turned the city into a distribution and transportation hub. Today, Nashville has one of the fastest-growing economies in the entire U.S. and is a center for higher education, health care, banking, publishing and auto manufacturing.

Don’t like the weather in Nashville? Wait ten minutes, and it will change. Unpredictability is Nashville’s meteorological hallmark. Winter oscillates between mild stretches and spells of brutal cold. Temperatures can be warm in spring and autumn during the day, but brisk at night, which means they’re just about perfect for a fire pit.

Ultimately, Nashville is a place where people love to connect. Whether it’s around food, fire, music, or all of the above, the people of Nashville love to get together. Community is also one of our biggest values at Cutting Edge Firewood. We all know how distracting life can be, but something about a great fire seems to melt all those distractions away and provide a place for people to connect.

High Quality Firewood Nashville

Whether you’re lighting a fire in your fireplace, fire put, or your outside grill, you’ll want to stick to with dry, quality hardwoods. Softwoods like cedar and pine contain a lot of resin, which means the smoke they create leaves creosote residues. Moisture in the wood can do the same thing. These residues can create a potential fire hazard by coating the inside of your chimney, and they can ruin the flavor of your meat as well as the inside of your smoker.

Firewood that comes from properly dried hardwoods will always give a better experience. They ignite more easily, burn brighter and hotter, and when they burn down, they will leave you with a bed of coals that produce radiant heat.

When you buy wood from a roadside vendor, you’ll have to take his or her word about the origins of that wood and how long it’s been seasoned. The moisture content of seasoned firewood can be as low as 20%, but it could also be as high as 30-40%. That does not burn well.

When you purchase firewood or cooking wood from Cutting Edge Firewood, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting. Our firewood is always kiln dried and the moisture content is 5-10%, providing a much better burning experience.

You’ll also benefit from firewood delivery Nashville. We’ll be happy to answer any further questions you may have about kiln dried firewood Nashville.

Contact us today at (678) 878-2434 with questions or to place an order. You can also order firewood through our website. We look forward to serving you and providing Nashville with the best firewood available!

The Best Firewood Available- Every Time
January 9, 2019

Looking to find some firewood near you in Chattanooga, Tennessee? Look no further than your own home with Cutting Edge Firewood!

Cutting Edge Firewood is proud to offer our complimentary artisan delivery service, right here in Chattanooga. We deliver boxes or racks of firewood to your home and will place and stack the firewood for you! No mess, no stress.

Not only do we offer unparalleled customer service, we also deliver unmatched firewood products. We have a wide selection of firewood, and can meet a variety of needs for each and every customer. We offer a variety of sizes and cuts, and even offer the best cooking wood available.

Why Choose Kiln Dried Wood

Having a Chattanooga company deliver kiln dried firewood straight to your door can make a big difference. Here at Cutting Edge Firewood, we only deliver the best kiln dried firewood. In order to guarantee this, we put our wood through a rigorous drying process – it spends 48 hours in a kiln and cooks at 250 degrees. The result is dense, dry, and clean wood that produces amazing fireside experiences.

The alternative to Kiln Dried Firewood is green or seasoned wood. The moisture content of green wood (wood that has freshly fallen or been cut from a tree) is about 50%. Properly seasoned wood is 20-30% moisture, although it’s hard to know if your buying properly seasoned firewood. Cutting Edge Firewood is between 5-10% moisture! The other problem with seasoned wood is that it is rotting and will likely have bugs and mold, but this is not the case with our premium firewood.

How to Store Firewood Correctly

You must store your firewood correctly because you can ruin good firewood with improper storage. If possible, you should store the firewood off the ground because this protects it from getting mold. We also recommend you store it in a place that avoids the elements – under your porch, in a shed, in the garage, or even in your living room are perfectly acceptable places when you choose Cutting Edge Firewood (no bugs, remember?)

If you need a good firewood rack and cover, then you’re in luck! We deliver all of our Cutting Edge Firewood racks in Chattanooga inside a 2′ x 4′ metal rack. It’s sleek, sturdy, modern, and the perfect way to store your unmatched firewood. We even place a cover over the top to help keep things dry and clean. Once you have used all the wood in your rack, you simply order another rack and we’ll replace your old rack with a new one.

Testimonials

We've ordered kiln-dried firewood for years from companies around Atlanta. No one compares to Cutting Edge. First, the wood is perfectly cured & burns without popping. You can select the exact variety of wood you want, and the hickory smells incredible! They offer a monthly re-stock rack that simplifies having to haul wood yourself. But what sets CEF apart is their customer service. It's like you're dealing with family - REAL people who are thoughtful, caring & professional. I wish more vendors took notes on how Cutting Edge operates. They even send thank-you notes! Southern manners, top-notch product - no one compares!

I am glad I finally found a firewood company I can add to my contacts and use every year. Cutting Edge is consistently great. The firewood is top-notch, lights easily and burns cleanly. Delivery is fast. They stack the wood so it looks great, give you advice on where to put it and whether to use racks, and clean-up after they leave. Cutting Edge is just an all-around pleasant experience.

Superb experience with every aspect of the company. I ordered the smoking chunks variety pack for my husband's birthday. We have had some delicious food prepped with it on other occasions and we look forward to using our own now. The delivery was expedient (same day as ordered - in December no less) and customer service follow up the same day to boot. We earlier purchased their specially treated firewood and have enjoyed immensely the warmth provided by CE fires with family and friends. FYI, I never realized how nasty the firewood from the grocery store is until I used CE. It is so refreshing to deal with a company that specializes not only in providing superior products, but also in providing superior service. It really is a novelty to have something done correctly the first time, and to have it done with such quality.

Cutting Edge might be known for their firewood but their wood chunks for cooking might be even better! The chunks are much cleaner and more solid than anything I've used before, and produce a great smoke flavor on my Big Green Egg cooks. This is an easy way to take my smoked meat to a whole new level.

Our family loves Cutting Edge! Every cold day all winter our family lights a fire for warmth and coziness. This is so easily done with the kiln dried firewood. We really can't brag about our skills lighting a fire because the wood lights so easily. We so highly recommend it that we say it'll light if you just look at it the right way. We seriously love this stuff and the atmosphere it helps our home provide.

There is no better firewood than Cutting Edge. When you combine the absolute best product with amazing people that make sure your entire experience is perfect you have the recipe for an incredible company. Once you start using Cutting Edge it’s hard to go back to anything else. I highly recommend the Hickory because of low smoke and high heat. Get the subscription plan especially during Fall and Winter to save yourself from running out of firewood when you need it most. Cannot recommend the people and product at Cutting Edge high enough!

Who knew?! I stopped by for some wood for grilling beef as I find most commercially available lump has too much hickory and couldn't be more impressed, both with the operation and the product. These guys are redefining the quality of firewood. Fast lighting and very clean burning, with consistency you don't get from random craigslist deliveries. They also had some great starters, fire pits, and kamado style grills, but the focus and energy is definitely on the quality of their product.

All firewood burns the same right?.. wrong! A day before I found CE on google I found a guy on FB market place selling firewood for a very low price and delivered to my house with a promise of a great hardwood and a good quality, the wood came in wet from the rain and I could not light it up, I was so disappointed and frustrated and started looking for a more reliable place to get firewood, came across CE on a google search and headed their way to pick up a load, I was expecting a backyard or fenced in parking lot with couple of hill Billy’s chopping wood but instead, I met this real nice guy and his wife and their kid in a very clean organized large warehouse running a business that it’s sole Proprietorship is selling firewood They specialize in all kind of woods from cooking in a pizza stove to green egg smoking and off course fireplace, the wood looks clean and sterile and has been kiln dried to extract all humidity. Needless to say, that night me and my family enjoyed and amazing fire both in our new pizza stove and fireplace and the wood was so easy to light, I would definitely come back for more loads and I recommend to any one who is in a search for good product and fair value.

I met the owner of Cutting Edge Firewood at a party at a friend’s house. Not only were they there until very late (early?) helping keep the fires burning, they were taking potential customer names. They followed up with me immediately and I wound up taking delivery not only of a rack of cherry but also a fire pit. The wood is of such high quality that it is without compare...and the service is top notch. I’ve discovered that firewood is like about anything else...you get what you pay for. If you are looking for cheap wood, this is not for you (and I’m talking to you, miss 1-star review lady), but if you are looking for bespoke firewood and great service, then give them a call!

I am passionate about good fires when relaxing around our fire pit with friends. I recently had a bad batch of hardwood and wanted to cry....it was smoking, wouldn't burn and made for a terrible evening. It was the first fire pit of the season and I feared we were doomed with terrible wood. I mentioned to my fiance that there had to be a solution for top quality firewood and he mentioned he had met the owner of Cutting Edge Firewood and that we should check it out. I drove as fast as I could the next day to their showroom in Norcross to see their wood and pick up a sample box of hickory. Wow! The wood burned fast, hot, bright with zero smoke. They provided fire starter, kindling etc. and we had the best fire pit night with 10 friends. I only wish I had bought more as it burned much faster than I expected. I highly recommend anyone who wants drama free firewood that burns consistently and evenly to give Cutting Edge a try. You WON'T be disappointed!

My 'artisan' delivery experience was really top-notch. I was curious how the company was going to set themselves apart given the delivery is something they seem to hang their hat on. There are LOTS of options for firewood, so why pay more through a service like this? Well, I have no regrets whatsoever. When I called with questions, the person who answered was very pleasant. When I purchased online, it was straightforward. When the delivery guy called with an arrival window he was extremely courteous and accommodating. He showed up on time and greeting me with enthusiasm. He made sure he understood where to stack the wood, and when I told him I needed some kindling he offered me some that was on the truck. They stacked the wood with utmost care, and made sure the room was clean of any debris before leaving. Now, I haven't put a match to this wood yet.. but the service is absolutely exceptional! I'll report back soon once the temps drop a little lower. 🙂

We ordered firewood at 3:30 and it was delivered less than 2 hours later. This wood is absolutely worth the price tag! It burns so much hotter and longer than the cheaper wood we get locally. When added up, the price almost balances out since Cutting Edge wood lasts much longer. Our house is toasty warm and smells amazing. It's a perfect wood for a perfect fire on a perfectly cold day. Thank you Cutting Edge, we are officially customers for life!

Let’s say that you happen to live in Alexandria, Virginia, and you’re trying to find top quality firewood—Cutting Edge Firewood, a firewood delivery Alexandria VA company, has developed a positive reputation in the community as people who understand firewood and how to get you the best deal on it.

What Makes Alexandria, Virginia, Unique?

Alexandria has a subtropical climate that enjoys mild to chilly winters. Alexandria, Virginia, has a George Washington monument that took 10 years to build. It’s worth checking out! During World War II, Alexandria had a torpedo and ammunitions factory that today is one of the biggest visual arts centers in the world. You have more than 160 artists who have had their works displayed here, and the center has over 2,000 art students. You have 112 parks throughout the city.

Why Does Quality Firewood Matter?

Having a premium firewood Alexandria VA company to sell you good firewood is important. The quality of the firewood will be a huge factor in how much heat it generates and for how long your firewood burns. You’re better off buying top-notch firewood because it lasts longer.

What is Quality Firewood?

Quality firewood will be pest-free, and it won’t have any mold on it. If you notice mold on the firewood, check to see if it’s a surface mold. In those cases, let the mold dry and brush it off. Don’t put moldy firewood in the fireplace because it can spread the mold spores throughout your home. Another one of the big signs of quality firewood is that you don’t have as much moisture in it. You can tell that you have dried firewood based on the sound it makes when you strike two pieces together. If the sound is dull, this means you still have a high moisture content in the wood. On the other hand, if you hear a high-pitched noise, this shows you that the firewood has dried. In addition, you can tell based on the color of the wood. Dried firewood won’t have a green look to it. It will either be brown, tan or a more neutral color.

Why You Should Experience Cooking with Wood?

At least once in their lives, everyone should experience cooking with firewood. For one thing, it gives the food an even better flavor than if you were to cook with coal. In addition, the smoke that gets produced from the wood fire and goes onto the food will have more of a curing effect on your food. As the wood burns, it releases chemical compounds like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur and nitrogen. This gives your food a flavor taste that you can’t get anywhere else. We have a wide selection of woods for cooking over the fire, but some of the cooking woods that we recommend include:

  • Cherry
  • Pecan
  • White Oak
  • Mesquite
  • Maple
  • Alder

With our kiln-dried firewood Alexandria VA company, you can check us out online to see what kind of woods we have for cooking over the fire. Our experts are more than happy to assist. If you want intense flavors for smoked meat, you might pick mesquite because it packs an intense flavor. You might do red meat as a way of getting the most flavor from it. On the other hand, if you were to cook with cherry, you will enjoy a mild and fruity flavor. You can also mix cherry with hickory, and the two flavors will complement each other. Now if you were to cook with pecan, you will enjoy a nutty flavor that has a hint of sweetness to it. In fact, it can make the meat so sweet that you may even want to combine it with one of the harder woods like oak to balance it out.

How to Store Firewood Correctly

Every species of wood will have different durations of drying. When storing the wood, even when you buy it from a kiln-dried firewood Alexandria VA company, you want to keep the firewood off the ground because this prevents moisture and bacteria from getting into the wood. This will cause it to decay much faster. You also shouldn’t store firewood indoors. It is better to only bring in a set amount of firewood for the home. This is because firewood attracts creatures like spiders, termites and other creatures that you probably don’t want inside your home. You could also attract mice in the home as they hide inside the wood pile. You also want to keep the firewood stored in an area safe and away from places where children and pets might frequent because you don’t want the firewood to topple over. Another risk is the snakes or spiders that lurk in the woodpile and make it into a home. They could be dangerous to your child.

Save on Energy This Year

If you’re looking to save on energy, you might use a wood burning stove or a fireplace. For those who use a fireplace, you might consider a fireplace insert installation to keep the heat from getting lost through the chimney. An insert uses a cast-iron or steel box that you fit into the masonry of your fireplace. This will turn it into more of a wood burning stove.

Are you interested in getting some firewood for this upcoming winter? If so, we invite you to contact Cutting Edge Firewood. Our company will work with you. We will deliver firewood straight to your door for the extra level of convenience. In this way, you don’t even have to pick it up, put it in the truck and haul it to your location. We will take on this for you.

Chilling with your friends in the backyard or having a romantic night with your significant other, the setting revolves around fires much of the time. That’s why having a premium firewood Manchester company to back you up with seasoned firewood can be a great experience even better. What can you do to get the longest burn with your fire? Here are a couple of things that will help to enhance the experience.

Building a Fire with a Top-Down Burn

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could set up a fire and have it burn well every time? In fact, you have a couple of things that you can do to help lower the amount of smoke and keep a longer-lasting fire. In general, the average person understands how to create a teepee or a log cabin for setting fires. The top-down method of doing a fire is the exact opposite of what you were taught. The advantage of it is that it works well in fireplaces, wood pits and wood stoves.

How to Begin

You begin the Top-down method by setting the biggest logs closer to the bottom. You place the wood with ends toward the front and the back. In doing this, you allow for the air to circulate and add fuel to the fire. It also depends on the size of your firebox. You might use some of the harder woods towards the bottom and use the softer woods near the top. This means that it will start up fast and burn fast, but as you get closer to the bottom, you will have longer-lasting coals in the fire. Near the top, you want to make the kindling small enough and easy to light. You want all the wood bought from a kiln-dried firewood Manchester company, but the wood closer to the top should especially be dried. You might place a crumpled paper near the top, but you could also use wood shavings as a way of getting the fire started. With a single match, you should have no problem lighting the fire. This is known as the top-down method.

People like to use this method because they can light it, and they’re done. It also starts a fire with less smoke. You can get a much longer burn from your firewood this way, which helps you to maximize it.

How to Handle the Ashes from the Fire

After you have bought from a premium firewood Manchester company, knowing about firewood matters, but what about handling the ashes that come after every fire? What should you do to handle the ash after the wood has been burned? Typically, a soft wood will have less weight, and you can expect it to produce a greater amount of ash. After you have burned the wood, you will always have ash. How do you handle it? You can put ash to use in a variety of ways. However, you should first understand that it might not be the best idea to remove all the ash from the fire after each use. When you have 1 inch of ash in the fireplace, it can help you maintain the fire. Even as the logs become hot coals, it can still generate a great deal of heat for your home.

Still, you don’t want so much ash in the fireplace that it causes the fire to burn out. In addition, too much ash can lower how many logs you can put into the fire. When you clean out all the ash, you could even find that building a fire can be more difficult because everything in the wood stove must first heat up. In general, at the end of each season, you can take the ash out of the fireplace and put into a bucket. However, be aware of when you last used the fireplace because you don’t want to put hidden hot coals in the bucket that were buried in the ash.

Never throw away wood ash if you have a garden because the ash adds more nutrients to the soil of your garden. This can help to strengthen the plants that thrive off of the calcium.

Checking out a firewood delivery Manchester company can help to have firewood delivered straight to your door. The advantage in going with a kiln-dried firewood Manchester company is that you don’t have to worry about loading or unloading the firewood. Let’s say that you put the firewood in a truck bed. The biggest disadvantage of this is that the bed can be full of moisture, and this can lead to your wood getting mold on it. You want to take measures to protect your firewood because you paid money for this. If you’d like to learn more, you can contact Cutting Edge Firewood, a firewood delivery Manchester company that understands how to help.

Having a kiln-dried firewood Jersey City company to stand behind you can be one of the best decisions that you ever made. Getting top-notch firewood that lasts a long time, burns bright and generates plenty of heat is one of the necessary things. However, if you’re new to fireplaces and burning wood, you may not even be aware that you have to dry it out before burning it. The wood burns cleaner, and you get less smoke when there’s less water in the wood. Typically, the process of drying it out takes anywhere from six months to a full year.

Why You Should Exercise Caution

When you go to buy firewood, you should exercise some caution because not everyone will have your best interests at heart. Getting firewood ready for burning takes between six months to a year for it to dry out. You don’t want to burn it when it’s green unless you have no choice. Sometimes unscrupulous wood dealers will sell this wood to you when it should’ve been left to dry for a while. When you clunk the wood pieces together, it should produce a high-pitched noise. If the noise produced sounds like a dull thud, it means you still have a high concentration of water content in it.

Burning Different Types of Woods: What’s the Best to Burn

The harder woods like ash, beech, birch, oak, thorn, chestnut and hawthorn are all good woods to burn. In addition, when you burn different woods, each of them can produce a different kind of burning. For example, when you burn apple, it burns slowly, and while it has a small flame size, it produces a pleasant scent. On the other hand, most people consider ash one of the best firewoods for burning. This is because it produces a high level of heat, and it gives you a steady flame. If you were to put beech on the fire, this has a similar burn to ash, which is a good thing.

Hawthorn is one of your more traditional firewoods, and it has a slower burn. The mighty oak has also always been a popular firewood because of how it burns for a long time. You can burn it with a smaller flame, but you have an incredibly slow burn with oak.

Staying Alert to the Danger of Chimney Fires

You must stay present to the danger of chimney fires because it’s a real danger if you don’t properly maintain your chimney. As you burn wood in the fireplace or the woodstove, the smoke exits through the chimney. These gases leave your home safely, but it can lead to a dirty buildup. These types of fires can damage your roof, the structure of your home or even injure and kill people.

The telltale red flags that show a chimney fire could take place include:

  • A hot smell that is intense
  • Too much dense smoke
  • Loud crackling and popping noises

Buying from a premium firewood Jersey City company can help you to lower the risk of these fires because dry wood of high quality tends to burn more cleanly than wood with moisture in it. People choose firewood delivery Jersey City companies because it lowers the risk of getting low-quality firewood. You have to take chimney fires seriously because they can burn explosively, and they may even shoot right from the top of the chimney. To lower the risk of a chimney fire, you should hire a chimney sweep once a year. However, this will also depend on how much you burn firewood. Normally, whenever you see a 1/8th deposit of creosote in the chimney, you should hire a chimney sweeper to have it taken care of. In some cases, you may have to sweep the chimney a couple times per year. This is especially true if the venting system does not match the output.

Dry Firewood Makes a Difference

You might be thinking that you don’t need a kiln-dried firewood Jersey City company to help because you will have a campfire and don’t need to worry about it burning cleanly. However, you have another big problem with burning green firewood, and that’s that it produces tons of smoke. If you have ever been on the receiving end of getting a lot of smoke from the firepit in your face, it’s not a pleasant feeling.

Why Turn to Cutting Edge Firewood

As a premium firewood Jersey City company, Cutting Edge Firewood has been doing business for a while now. You can buy from us online and have it delivered straight to your door via freighter so that you never even have to lift a finger to get it back to your place. With our firewood delivery Jersey City company, we love working with customers and helping them to heat their home during the colder months.

On a cold night, a warm fire safely ablaze in the fireplace of your Newark home is a beautiful sight. There’s just something about watching crackling flames that inspires intimacy, reflection and relaxation. What’s the key to producing a fire that radiates heat and light but puts forth relatively little smoke? Great firewood. Cutting Edge Firewood delivers high-quality firewood straight to your door so that any time you want to enjoy a fire, you’ll have the materials right at hand. Our premium firewood Newark is kiln-dried hardwood, which ignites easily and burns smoothly for a long time.

About Newark, New Jersey

Newark was founded by Puritans in the late 17th century; its name is actually a contraction of the first two words of “New Ark of the Covenant.” Newark remained a sleepy village until the 19th century when it became the center of America’s burgeoning leather goods and plastic industries. Thomas Edison used Newark as his headquarters before moving his laboratory to nearby Menlo Park. Today, the city is one of the nation’s most prominent air, shipping and railway hubs and boasts a population of more than 285,000. Though it is classified as part of the greater New York City metropolitan area, Brick City has a unique stamp that’s all its own.

Kiln-Dried Firewood Newark

Typical winter temperatures in Newark hover just above the freezing mark. Though the city gets less snow on average than its inland neighbors, Nor’easter blizzards are not rare events. The sky tends to stay overcast for long stretches of time throughout the autumn, winter and fall. Cool, cloudy days are the perfect time to enjoy the warmth and comfort of a fire.

Scientists say that staring into flames may have played an important role in the evolution of the human brain because it enabled prehistoric human beings to remain active even after the sun had set. One thing is certain: Staring into a fire is a great way to alleviate stress since it can lower your blood pressure by as much as 5 percent. The firewood you use in the fireplace of your Newark home will make an enormous difference in the quality of your fire. Hardwoods like oak, hickory and cherry wood are denser than softwoods like pine, spruce and cedar, so they produce brighter, longer-lasting flames with less smoke and less creosote. Cutting Edge Firewood offers firewood delivery Newark.

How to Stop Your Fire From Smoking

The secret to building a fire that creates relatively little smoke lies in the firewood you use to fuel that fire. It’s critically important to use wood that’s been thoroughly dried. At Cutting Edge Firewood, we condition the wood we sell in high-temperature ovens called kilns. Though the U.S. Department of Agriculture only requires kiln-dried firewood to be conditioned for 4 hours, we condition our firewood for 48 hours. This removes any residual moisture that might make our firewood difficult to light, and it also kills any pests or fungi in the wood. Our kiln-dried firewood is simply the highest-quality firewood available.

It’s also important to have your chimney cleaned at least once a year to avoid the buildup of creosote and other debris. This will enable your chimney to maintain a good updraft so that smoke can be sucked up the chimney instead of down into your livingroom.

Before you light your fire, open your fireplace damper. If you’re burning wood in a wood-burning stove, you’ll need to open your wood burner’s damper; you’ll usually be able to do that by turning the designated switch on the front of your stove.

Begin your fire by lighting newspaper and kindling. Once the flames begin to leap, you can place one or two smaller pieces of wood on them, but be careful not to smother the flames with too much wood. When you place the wood, stack it so that there are gaps between the pieces that can facilitate airflow. Once your fire is burning well, you can continue feeding it with larger pieces of wood.

Premium Firewood Newark

Cutting Edge Firewood sells three types of kiln-dried firewood Newark in an assortment of different sizes:

Hickory: Hickory firewood is one of the hottest-burning of all hardwoods. Because it’s so dense, it can be hard to saw and split. When you buy premium firewood Newark from Cutting Edge Firewood, the firewood that arrives at your doorstep will already have been split so that it’s the ideal size for your fireplace or wood-burning oven.

Oak: Oak firewood is probably the most popular choice. The oak firewood that Cutting Edge Firewood sells is a mix of high-quality red oak and white oak that’s been harvested from forests in the southern part of the U.S.

Cherry wood: Cherry wood fires burn quickly but produce a savory aroma that intensifies the pleasure of sitting round a fire with loved ones. For customers who want to prolong burn time, we typically recommend mixing cherry wood with oak.

Nothing beats sitting round a crackling fire on a blustery night in Pittsburgh. Your living room fills with radiant heat and the sweet aroma of burning wood while you and your companion exchange confidences, sip your favorite beverages and dream your favorite dreams. It’s as easy as finding the right firewood for your fireplace. Cutting Edge Firewood sells high-quality, kiln-dried hickory, oak and cherry wood, and we offer firewood delivery Pittsburgh.

About Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Look for the place where the mighty Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers join, and you’ll find Pittsburgh. The city was once known for its steel manufacturing industry, but in the last 40 years, Steel City has reinvented itself as a center for education, health care, technology and the arts. Formerly polluted rivers and streams now run past parks and recreational trails; industrial buildings have been repurposed as shops, performance venues and urban residential areas. “Metropolis Magazine” recently dubbed Pittsburgh one of the world’s most livable cities; and if you’re one of the more than 300,000 people fortunate enough to live there, you probably agree.

Premium Firewood Pittsburgh

One thing that hasn’t changed about Pittsburgh is the severity of its winters: In an average year, Steel City sees 41.9 inches of snow. Daytime temperatures hover just above freezing except during cold snaps, but they can plummet into the low teens or below in the nighttime.

Staring at the flames flickering in the fireplace of your Pittsburgh home is not only a warming experience, but also a relaxing one. Humans have been gathering around fires since Paleolithic times, and some scientists think the relaxation most people feel when they look at glowing embers is an evolutionary adaptation. Recent research has discovered that looking at a fire can lower an individual’s blood pressure as much as 5 percent. When you order kiln-dried firewood Pittsburgh, you’ll enjoy fires that give off a lot of heat and light with very little smoke.

Firewood 101

Whether you’re buying firewood for your fireplace, wood-burning stove or outdoor fire pit, there are some things you should keep in mind.

All firewood is not the same: Dense hardwoods like hickory, oak and cherry wood make the best fires. Softer woods such as pine, fir and cedar burn too fast and don’t produce long-lasting coals. In fact, resinous woods such as pine create higher levels of creosote, which can coat the inside of your chimney and become a potential fire hazard. You never want to burn wood in your fireplace that has been used in any type of manufacturing process because the chemicals used to treat that wood can release toxic gases when the wood burns.

Kiln-drying is better than seasoning: When wood is first harvested, it has a high moisture content and will create a lot of smoke if you try to burn it. Firewood is supposed to dry out for at least nine months before it’s used. This drying process is called “seasoning.”

Cutting Edge Firewood takes the seasoning process one step further. We dry the wood we sell in a specially engineered high-heat oven called a “kiln.” Not only does kiln-drying remove the residual moisture that makes unseasoned firewood so difficult to light, but it also kills any pests or fungi the wood might be harboring. The U.S. Department of Agriculture only requires kiln-dried wood to be treated for four hours, but at Cutting Edge Firewood, we treat our kiln-dried wood for a full 48 hours because we believe the customers who buy kiln-dried firewood Pittsburgh deserve the best.

Firewood comes in different sizes: A split piece of wood that’s 16 inches long is the right size for most indoor fireplaces and wood-burning stoves. However, it your fireplace or fire pit is larger than average, or you’re dealing with a smaller wood stove, you’ll want wood that’s appropriately sized for that appliance. At Cutting Edge Firewood, we sell premium firewood Pittsburgh in an assortment of sizes: kindling; 16-inch splits of hickory, oak and cherry wood; 24-inch splits of hickory, oak and cherry wood; 30-inch splits of hickory and oak; oversized chunks of hickory and oak; and chiminea splits between 4 and 14 inches. We also offer 24-inch uncut rounds.

Delivered Straight to Your Door

When you buy from Cutting Edge Firewood, your firewood will be delivered straight to the door of your Pittsburgh home. Our firewood is delivered with a rack that so revolutionizes the stacking process that we have a patent pending on it. We’re passionate about firewood, and that passion shows in all our products.

We offer a Firewood Rack Subscription service and a Firewood Box Subscription service, too, so that you’ll never run out of firewood when you want the comfort of a fire. Learn more about Cutting Edge Firewood and firewood delivery Pittsburgh by calling (678) 878-2434 today or by clicking the “Order Now” option on our website.

Kiln Dried Firewood for your Fireplace
January 9, 2019

There’s something about sitting in front of a fire in your Philadelphia home with loved ones and friends that inspires you to share confidences, tell stories, revel in intimacy. That experience can go awry, though, if your friends are coughing and choking because the seasoned wood in your fireplace has filled the room with smoke.

Here at Cutting Edge Firewood, we believe that great fires lead to great memories. Our story started out of frustration – it seemed like nobody had great firewood. You could go to the grocery store or hardware store and come home with a small bag of inconsistent quality wood. You could call the guy down the street who would dump a load of dirty, moldy wood from his backyard into your driveway and then stack it yourself. You could wander around your backyard looking for sticks that had fallen and dried up some.

But none of those options produced great fires or fireside experiences. They were smoky, smelly, and frankly, a lot of work to get going.

Instead, we developed a rigorous kiln drying process for our firewood. Our wood is heated to 250 degrees for 48 hours, killing any bugs, mold, or fungus. It comes out clean and dry – it’s as close to perfect as we can possibly make it. We then hand select each piece of wood, choosing only the best before placing them inside our boxes or racks and delivering them to your door in Philadelphia.

Cutting Edge Firewood takes the mess and stress out of obtaining firewood. We remove every barrier, making great fireside experiences easier than ever before.

Philadelphia, History, and Firewood

When you live in Philadelphia, history is all around you, from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell Center to the row houses of Society Hill and Mutter Museum’s medical curiosities. Philadelphia, though, is a thoroughly modern place. More than 1,500,000 residents call Philly home, and no fewer than five Fortune 1000 companies are headquartered here. The City of Brotherly Love is also one of the largest health education and biotechnology hubs in the country.

In the same way, every time you start a fire, you’re connected with the history of our past. For thousands of years, people have gathered around fires to connect, share stories, and grow. Just because it’s a historic tradition, however, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give it a modern approach.

Cutting Edge Firewood is redefining the way we think about firewood. We’ve made it easier for you to source, we promise consistently high quality, and we’ve removed the moisture for a more pleasing experience.

The Health Benefits of Fire

The thing about wintertime in Philadelphia is that you never know when it’s going to hit. One moment, the weather can be relatively mild with temperatures in the low 40s; the next, there’s a raging snowstorm. This element of surprise makes it important to have a supply of firewood on hand so that on a chilly night, you and your loved ones can unwind next to the fireplace.

Relaxing around a fire at the end of a stressful day has quantifiable health benefits. Scientists have found that dreaming in front of a fire can reduce your blood pressure by as much as 5 percent. Flames in a fireplace may also help people whose wintertime blues are related to light deprivation. Kiln-dried firewood creates hotter, brighter flames with minimal smoke. Cutting Edge Firewood makes it easy to get premium firewood Philadelphia; all you have to do is put in an order, and we’ll deliver high-quality hickory, oak or cherry wood straight to your home in Philadelphia.

Kiln Dried Firewood Philadelphia

Sure, you can buy firewood from a roadside vendor, or a supermarket or big box store. But the firewood you buy from a vendor is likely to be poorly dried, which means when you burn it, the fire is likely to be very smoky; because the drying process is so cursory, roadside firewood may also be infested with insects or mold. Firewood bought from a supermarket or a big box store can have inconsistent quality, and it’s often too moist to burn optimally.

The secret behind Cutting Edge Firewood’s high quality is our kiln-heating process. The United States Department of Agriculture only requires firewood to be conditioned for four hours, but at Cutting Edge Firewood, we dry our firewood at high temperatures for a full 48 hours to make absolutely certain it’s free of pests and fungi. That’s the reason why our firewood burns more cleanly and for a longer time than any other available firewood.

The Right Wood for Your Fireplace or Wood-Burning Stove

Hardwoods such as hickory, oak and cherry burn longer and cleaner than softwoods like cedar, cypress or pine. BTUs (British Thermal Units) are the standard metric used to measure the amount of heat energy that’s present in any given substance.

Hardwoods have a higher BTU than softwoods, so they have a higher energy content, which means each load will produce more heat and longer lasting coal beds. Additionally, when you burn softwoods in your fireplace or wood-burning stove, you create more creosote, and that creosote can become a fire hazard when it builds up inside your chimney. Cutting Edge Firewood sells high-quality oak, cherry wood and hickory.

Firewood length is very important, too. Using a piece of firewood that’s even slightly too long for your stove or fireplace can make stoking your fire extremely difficult. Most fireplaces and stoves work best with firewood that’s cut into pieces between 14 and 16 inches long.

Cutting Edge Firewood sells kiln dried firewood in Philadelphia in an assortment of sizes:

Kindling: Short and thin lengths of wood that are used to start a fire

Chiminea: An assortment of firewood between 4 and 14 inches in length that’s great for small wood-burning stoves and fireplaces

Standard Cut: 16 inches

24-inch Longer Length Cut: Perfect for larger fireplaces and fire pits

30-inch Longer Length Cut: Use this for oversized fireplaces and fire pits

Extended Burn Cut: Three to four times thicker than our standard-sized firewood. Best used in conjunction with standard-sized pieces because can be difficult to light.
